mugsy has passed away

Posted: June 26, 2008 at 10:19 pm

i believe he had an abdominal tumour that ruptured tonight…he was lethargic and his mucous membranes were white, he was obviously bleeding internally…deb and angelina came and helped me get him to the vet. mugsy was a tough old farm dog and he did not like human things…like collars and leashes and mini vans and it terrified him to go anywhere. but he managed really well, he was so very brave and he died quietly and stoically…. full of his own kind of unique dignity..he was a very great dog.

i will miss your utterly beautiful face, good dog mugsy, very good dog.

    Mugsy was brave, he was strong and he felt no fear or pain as Carol cradled his big, beautiful head and murmured soft and comforting words into his ear.
    Mugsy’s spirit left him surrounded by love. Goodbye good dog.

  • Wow that must be why his tolerance for other dogs had decreased just recently. He was probably uncomfortable alot of the time. I will miss him too. I learned to really like him. I hope Cleo is alright. She will surely miss him!! So glad that Deb and Angelina were there too. Be happy and rest well dear Mugsy. Eva
    See you in the am Carol.
